What is Joint Replacement Surgery?
Replacement Arthroplasty or joint replacement surgery is one of the procedures of orthopedic surgery where an arthritic or dysfunctional joint surface gets replaced with an orthopedic prosthesis. Joint replacement surgery is needed when severe joint pain or dysfunction doesn’t get alleviated through less-invasive therapies.
This is the procedure where damaged joints are replaced by the prosthesis. The prosthesis is made from metal, plastic, or ceramic. It can easily replicate the working of a healthy joint. Joint replacement surgery is generally performed on the knee, wrist, hip, ankle, elbow, and shoulder. The most common forms of joint replacement surgery include hip & knee replacements.
Cause of Joint Replacement Surgery
There are many reasons why there is the arrival of pain or disability in joint and make the patients think about doing joint replacement surgery. The damage to the damage in cartilage can cause joint pain. Then, the damages could be due to arthritis, fracture, or any other unknown conditions. When non-surgical treatments such as medication, lifestyle change, and any other physical therapy don’t produce the desired result, the doctors may advise for joint replacement surgery. Just before the surgery, the doctors will tell the patient about the risks and complications with such surgery.
During the surgery, the damaged cartilage or bone is taken away from the joint and replaced with prosthetic components that are made of metal, ceramic, or plastic, or metal. This prosthesis will work as a normal joint and would appear very similar to the normal joint.
